Young people making the best of what they have (creativity), and us sharing it with the entire World in form of (artworks, products, and art prints) to raise what they need (school fees) and enable them to attain (quality education) that they deserve.
Faces Up Store is an initiative by Faces Up Uganda that inclusively empowers young people from underserved communities to take the lead in bettering their own lives. We hope to enable them to keep their education dreams alive by harnessing their creativity to bring them monetary value/raise funds and pay for their education. On every product(s), artwork(s) or art print(s) sold, 60% of the price paid goes to school fees of the artists, 20% goes into procuring more art materials for them to continue creating while 20% covers our administrative costs.
The statement designs on the products are inspired by original drawings done by the young artists as well as the artworks. We start by offering free mentorship sessions for young people at our community center located in Masanafu, Bukulugi zone so as to enable them become more creative, confident and compassionate. By purchasing any of these items, you make the following impact;
You directly support the education of the young artists.
You enable youths and girls who sew the products to make an income.
You enable us to continue offering free mentorship within underserved communities.
